‘Clueless’ actress Stacey Dash snubbed by black women’s lifestyle magazine for supporting Romney

Stacey DashSimply by checking the box for GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012, actress Stacey Dash lost the respect of a black, women’s lifestyle  magazine. Online magazine “Madame Noire nominated Dash along with celebrities that are accused of domestic violence and purported sex with minors in a list titled, “Celebrities we lost respect for in 2012.”

Dash tweeted her support of Mitt Romney back in October of last year by stating, “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.”

She got hate tweets in response and was called “not black enough” and even asked to “kill herself.”

“Madame Noire” couldn’t let go, listing Dash among the 15 celebrities that they “lost respect for in 2012.” Author Meg Butler stated below the picture of Dash that she “can’t respect a black person silly enough to vote for Mitt Romney. I can’t respect a woman silly enough to vote for Mitt Romney. Stacey Dash is both of those. ‘Nuff said.”

And Dash was in some pretty terrible company on that list; among them, NFL wide receiver Chad Ochocinco who lost “Noire’s” respect because “hitting a woman is never OK.” Former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash made the list for the scandal that surfaced last year that alleges he had sex with underage boys.

And of all the celebrities that displayed disrespectful behavior in 2012, “Madame Noire” found another spot for a Romney supporter for being just that –a  Romney supporter. Clint Eastwood also made the list for coming out of the “political closet for Mitt Romney of all people.”

It’s courteous of “Madame Noire” to be so transparent about what qualifies as behavior that “loses respect.” Domestic violence? Check. Sex with minors? Check. Voting for Mitt Romney? Check.

      Whatever happened to “Freedom to Vote?”
      I guess ALL black women that didn’t vote for Obama lost respect as well.
      The black women’s lifestyle magazine RACIST to say they lost respect for Dash.

    Stacey Dash,
    I appreciate and respect your independent spirit and strength to do what you think is right!!

  5. Kelly says:

    Stacey Dash, You are a Smart, Beautiful Woman, do not let the racists and hateful people of the Obama ilk make you believe differently. You were absolutely correct in your tweet, our future is crap, I have never hurt so badly as the morning of Nov 7th. I sobbed, I could not go to work for 2 days, the depression so bad. Girlfriend, you were so right. Look at us now.

    Who gives a rats rear end what a pathetic rag like “Madame Noire” thinks? Obviously the staff at that garbage outfit doesn’t have the intelligence to fill a thimble.

  8. Qamhat says:

    Wow. That’s profound, placing Stacey Dash on the same list with people that abuse women and children… I wonder what black conservatives like Condi Rice, Colin Powell or Bill Cosby feel about that.
    Pathetic really and the worst sort of racialism. I wouldn’t vote for Romney and disagree with her choice of politics but respect anyone and everyone to get out the vote.

  9. ZUBU says:

    Stacey Dash is so out of touch if she even remotely belived that Mitt Romney can relate to average Americans; has any concern about average Americans, or ever will. This is not about racism it’s about classism and Romney has no clue as to what the average American experiences everyday. We want a leader who is of the people not a leader who abhors the people.

    An example of how concerned he was for his own staff: he cut their credit cards off the second he lost the election. He left people stranded all over the nation, men and women were stuck in hotels, airports, restaurants, etc. with cards that were being declined because Mitt axed them. Might I remind you these were the people who worked very hard to elect him, he vividly demostrated his concern. What a guy, Stacey talked about MLK, and Mitt Romney in the same sentence? God blesses us all with unique talents and obviously Stacey my dear God made you a very beautiful woman, but darling it seems as if you were absent for intellect, or common sense dispursment.

    1. Alistz says:

      The very definition of out of touch would be some belief that Barack Obama is a better alternative than Mitt Romney. No President has done more to harm average Americans in the last 80 years than the man whose policies are so extremist anti- capitalist that his election caused 2 million jobs to be lost, who took a 2.5% economic contraction and used it as an excuse to crap away six trillion dollars in debt; who increased Government Spending from 18% to 24% crowding out private investment and growth, lowering the growth in GDP by 50% from it’s previous 30 year average; who has managed long term under employment and unemployment unseen for 80 years that has caused record levels of dependency on government, food stamps and permanent disability as labor force participation rates have cratered; who has over seen the first net negative job growth administration and falling national incomes, rising poverty, and lowered well being.

      The damage of Barack Obama’s economic policies is self-evident. America would have been more financially sound, growing economically, and hence have a wealthier, happier, better-off population if it had elected Mitt Romney.

      Stacey Dash in no doubt just brighter than you are.
